    I'm impressed also,
    which ones did you get,how powerful are they, and where did you get the kit from,is it easy to get a replacement bulb,and where from,and now much would a bulb be, does it dazzle oncoming traffic and finally will it pass an MOT.

    Might get some. THANKS

    High beam is great. Kept dipped on but angled them high behind a landrover and he moved right out my way

    Just work like my normal lights but they are both on, on main im sure cant wait to get my quads on tho.
